Information leakage of WHOIS entries for Google Apps domains

03/12/2015

Talos (Cisco) researchers have detected that, since mid 2013, private information from WHOIS entries managed by Google Apps, through eNom, has been publicly accessible. This flaw has affected 282.867 domains that had been registered making use of the privacy protection option offered by Google.

This information could by used by cybercriminals as a support for social engineering techniques, such as spear phishing attacks.
